In addition, he established his music label, GOOD Music under Def Jam as well. “UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD THEM,” read one his tweets. “MY CHILDREN WILL OWN MY MASTERS… NOT YOUR CHILDREN…MY CHILDREN… MY CHILDREN,” read another tweet.

Here's Another Tweet:

Kanye went on tweeting, “OK GUYS CHECK THIS OUT ... I DONT HAVE A CONTRACT WITH UNIVERSAL ... I HAVE TEN. THEY TRY TO BURRY US ALIVE.” Through his Twitter rant, the singer elaborated that a standard record deal is a trap to never have one recoup and contracts include many hidden costs such as the ‘distribution fees.’ Adding the same, he accused the labels of putting such costs in their contracts to earn more money off an artist’s work.

Kanye's Tweet:

You can check his entire series of tweets with photos of his contracts with the music label on his official Twitter account. He even added that he wouldn’t be releasing any more music, until he is done with the contract with Sony and Universal. His battle with the music labels over owning rights is clear to the world now, and it does not seem that the feud will stop anytime soon.
